iVlessage from the President 

Dear Readers, 

Mount St. Mary's College is well into 
the 1996-97 academic year, with a 
strong enrollment of students who are 
off to a good start toward becoming our future 
alumnae. From the Oct. 3 ceremonial 
groundbreaking for the Doheny Learning 


the year 2000 
and ultimate success 
is off to a great start. 

Resource Center, renamed the Sister Magdalen 
Coughlin Learning Complex, to an all-out voter 
registration effort to get 100 percent voter 
participation by faculty, staff and students, this 
promises to be an exciting fall. The College 
celebrated its 71st anniversary during Founders 
Weekend Oct. 5 and 6, leaving just four years to 
go to our 75th and the end of the millenium. 

As you know, the conclusion of the $40 million 
Campaign for Mount St. Mary's College will 
coincide with our 75th anniversary. You can take 
great pride in the fact that we exceeded the 1 995- 
96 goal of $4,865,000. This achievement brings 
us to $23,400,000, or 58.5 percent of our $40 
million goal. The drive toward the year 2000 and 
ultimate success is off to a great start. Our 
profound thanks go to all of you who have shown 
your faith in the future of MSMC by your support. 

You may be surprised to receive another Honor 
Roll this year (the first was included in the winter 
issue of the Mount St. Mary's College Magazine). 
We are changing the schedule of the magazine so 
that you receive the Honor Roll in a more timely 

manner after the College's fiscal year ends in June. 
We hope you agree that the change is for the better. 

While I'm on the subject of change, the 
magazine is taking the Campaign theme, Timeless 
Values for Changing Times, quite literally in this 
issue by putting a spotlight on the "Changing 
Times" aspect. You will see several articles about 
recent physical changes on the Chalon and 
Doheny campuses. These changes range from the 
major — the groundbreaking for the Sister 
Magdalen Coughlin Learning Complex, and Coe 
Library renovation, to the playful — new 
playground equipment at the Child Development 
Center. Please enjoy this mini tour of the new 
and improved facets of Mount St. Mary's College. 

Sister Karen M. Kennelly 

Mount St. Mary's College Magazine 

A major change that is not as obvious when 
you walk around the campuses involves 
new technology. Offices, classrooms and labs are 
becoming electronically linked together with the 
outside world thanks to substantial grants from 
the Wiegand, Keck, GTE and Parsons 
foundations as well as the National Science 
Foundation and National Institutes of Health. 


several articles about 

recent physical changes 

on the Chalon 
and Doheny campuses. 

The Teagle Foundation also donated funds for 
curriculum development to help faculty 
incorporate technology in their curricula. If you 
tour the Chalon Campus this fall, you will see 
space in the Art Building that has been 
transformed into a technologically advanced 
classroom with 28 work stations. Another art 
classroom now has computers for computer 
design projects. Extensive renovation of the 
science labs completed this summer features 
numerous technological upgrades. Faculty 
members are already taking advantage of the new 
computing equipment by replacing slides with 
video and computer simulations. The campus is 
also developing a World Wide Web site on the 
Internet which should be up and running by the 
time you read this — you can visit it at By January 1997, we will 
have newly installed telephone and data 
communications systems which will integrate 
both campuses. 

This year will also bring some changes of the 
less physical variety. After a year of gathering 
information and identifying priorities, the 
Strategic Plan Coordinating Committee met this

summer to draft the 

College's 1996-2001 

Strategic Plan. The 

entire campus reviewed 

the draft at 

convocation in August 

for submission to 

trustees in October. 

Setting direction for 

the next five years is 

one of the most 

important things we 

do as a college community. Students, faculty, 

staff, alumnae, trustees and regents have all been 

called upon to contribute. We are very grateful 

for the ideas shared at convocations and forums 

this year. The resulting Plan strongly asserts the 

"Timeless Values" which drive our campaign: 

intellectual rigor, compassionate faith, individual 

leadership and dedicated service.

is one of the 

most important things we do 

as a college community. 

What a joy it is to be associated with a college 
that believes in such values and expresses them in 
each and every program. How proud we can be 
of having a small part in this great common 
enterprise of making a Mount St. Mary's College 
education accessible to America's future leaders.

Turning a New Leaf: 

enovation of the Chal 


the wrought iron chandeliers shed light on the spacious 
main reading room as they have since 1947 — but 
almost every other nook and cranny of the original 
Charles Willard Coe Memorial Library has been 
renovated, restored, or re-arranged to create a state-of- 
the-art library, which houses 120,000 volumes; 500 
periodicals and journals; and 2,600 media programs. 

With newly installed electronic connections, students 
have access to resources near and far via on-line 
catalogs and CD-ROM collections. Eventually, each 
dorm room will be equipped with cable access to the 
library and its services. 

Plush sofas in multi-colored prints of teal blue, 
burgundy and gold, patterned carpeting throughout in 
burgundy and taupe, light-colored oak tables and 
chairs, improved lighting and a new air-conditioning 
system enhance the facility and encourage students to 
study in a welcoming, comfortable setting embellished 
by the College's collection of paintings, sculptures and 
fine antique furniture. Navigating through the four- 
story building is facilitated by a new elevator, ramps for 
disabled access, and redesigned stairwells. 

Coe Library today. 


Coe Library in earlier days. 

dedicated May 11, 1947, was built when Sister M. 
Celine Coe gave the College $314,000. The money was 
a legacy from her father, Charles Willard Coe, for 
whom the library is named. The original cost for 
construction and furnishings was $585,000. The recent 
renovation, from May 1994 to June 1995, cost $4 
million-plus, and was funded by gifts from foundations 
such as: Thomas and Dorothy Leavey, Carrie Estelle 
Doheny, Ahmanson, Weingart, as well as alumnae and 
friends of the College. 

"The renovated library is popular with students," 
says Claudia Reed, director of libraries. "According to 
our gate count, the number entering the library each 
day has doubled. The new study area on the bottom 
floor affords ample quiet space, and the group study 
areas on the second floor are used by those who prefer 
to combine study with discussion. Students are 
increasingly accessing the Internet and our expanding 
databases to help meet their research needs."

From Petri Dishes to Computer Disks: 

enovation In The Science Laboratories 


'N A WARM SPRING DAY, biology majors were 
conducting experiments in one of the College's science 
laboratories. The room was hot and stuffy and the live 
cells that had been prepared for observation appeared 
lifeless because of the heat. Suddenly, as one of the 
students entered facts about the experiment into a 
computer, a faucet began to leak, an electrical fuse blew 
and the research data was lost.

Before this summer, the science labs were crowded and 

"This and similar scenarios occurred frequently," 
says Sister Annette Bower, biological sciences chair. 
"Our laboratories were obsolete and the infrastructure 
was not capable of supporting the technology we 
currently use in our physical and biological sciences 
departments. In addition, there were too many students 
in a small space, not enough storage, and the climatic 
conditions were far from ideal for scientific study or for 
keeping technological equipment from malfunctioning." 

Thanks to a grant of $250,000 from the W. M. Keck 
Foundation to renovate and expand the biological and 
physical science laboratories, and a $400,000 grant 
from the National Science Foundation to upgrade 
research facilities, the Mount was able to set a major 
remodeling project in motion. 

Renovation began during summer and winter breaks 
in 1995 when electrical and plumbing improvements 
were made; safety doors and air-conditioning were 
installed; and the laboratories were brought up to code 
for fire and earthquake safety. The remaining work in 
the eight science labs this summer saw the installation 
of chemical-resistant oak cabinets, radioactive and 
chemical exhaust hoods, and elastomeric flooring 
(made of elastic material for comfort and reduction of 
breakage). Walls were moved to create new storage 
areas, a computer analysis center, rooms for laser light 
research, hazardous materials storage and a darkroom 
to develop film from protein gels for amino acid 
sequence studies. 

^AlODERN TECHNOFOGY has become an 
integral part of teaching and research in the sciences," 
says Bower. "Students are using computers to simulate 
experiments, change variables, and receive analyzed 
results immediately. The renovation moves the whole 
process forward at an accelerated rate and will better 
enable our students to quickly access worldwide 
databases and gain expertise in a variety of rapidly 
developing molecular techniques employed in the fields 
of science and medicine." 

After the renovation, the streamlined labs have been 
upgraded and modernized.

^ Reunion Class Acts *4^ 

Classes that had a reunion Oct. 5 (classes of 
1946, '51, '56, '61, '66, VI, 76, '81, '86), 
and the Golden Graduates who celebrated their 
50 year anniversary reunion May 1 1, challenged 
themselves to double their .class gifts and 
participation during the 1995-96 Annual Fund. 
While no class met that challenging goal, 
reunion class donations increased an average of 
52 percent with participation increasing an 
average of 7 percent. Several classes deserve 
special mention: 

■ Largest amount raised by one class was 
$26,900 from the class of '46. 

■ Greatest increase in class giving was from the 
class of '71 which increased its 1994-95 giving 
of $1,020 to $5,355 in 1995-96. 

■ Greatest increase in participation was a jump 
from j6 percent participation in 1994-95 to 
47 percent in 1995-96 from the class of 1961. 

Nearly all reunion classes increased gifts and 
participation. Donations were counted until the 
reunion parties in October, when a member of 
each class presented the final totals to President 
Karen Kennelly. For more information about 
Annual Giving, call (310) 471-9807.

Just Play in' Fun: 

ew Play Equipment 

at Child Development Center 

1 HE CHILDREN AT THE Doheny Child 
Development Center have good reason to swing, jump 
and slide to their hearts' content. Their playground has 
been magically transformed into an aesthetically 
pleasing, fun-promoting haven thanks to a $24,960 
renovation and repair grant from the California 
Department of Education and other funding sources. 

The Doheny Child Development Center's play 
equipment before. 

"The playground needed to be brought up to the 
safety standards of the Americans With Disabilities 
Act," says Linda Crosby, Center director. Formerly 
characterized by aging and uninspiring equipment, the 
Center's play area lacked the visual appeal needed to 
promote and stimulate activity among the children. 

The comprehensive renovation plan, which took 
more than five years to materialize, has seen the 
installation of play equipment designed specifically for 
children's muscle coordination and motor skills 
development. The equipment includes a bridge, ring 
climber, slide, ramp and overhead ladder stand. "There 
are other implements, including a spiral slide, that the 
Center will install," says Crosby. 

The play equipment today strengthens muscles and is much 

AlSO GRACING THE GROUNDS is a new garden 
sprouting corn, tomatoes, squash, zucchini and 
pumpkin which the children help plant and cultivate. 
"The most amazing phenomenon for the children is the 
metamorphosis of the seeds they plant; they always 
wonder how such a large vegetable could have been 
born from a tiny seed," says Rebecca Gayden, a teacher 
at the Center. In addition to assisting in the production 
process, the children participate in cooking activities 
which teaches them how different vegetables are 
prepared. As for the lessons learned, Gayden remarks, 
"A kindergartner asked why these vegetables taste 
better than the ones his mom buys at the store." 

More than 100 parents, staff and students gathered 
at the Center May 2 to cheer at the playground 
dedication ceremony when Sister Kathleen Kelly, vice 
president of the Doheny Campus, "cut the ribbon" and 
officially declared the playground open for fun. The 
news couldn't have been more welcomed by the 
children who closed the ceremony with a heartening 
song and dance performance that was marked by smiles 
of overwhelming approval.

Campaign Update 

FALL 1996 


As Campaign Co-Chair for the Regents, I am pleased to take a moment to 
tell you about some of the accomplishments of last year and some Regent 
plans for the upcoming year. 

As you may already know, our Regent kick-off 
event, Timeless Treasures 70th Anniversary Auction, 
was a big success. More than 200 of us had a great 
time at the Century Plaza Towers and many of us 
bought wonderful items we will "treasure" forever. 
The money we raised will assist the fine students who 
embody Mount St. Mary's mission. 

This year, for the first time, 

we have established a 

minimum annual gift for 

Regents of $2,500. It is our 

sincere hope that this move 

will enable us to have a 

dependable source of ongoing 

unrestricted support for the 

College. In addition, we hope 

that a financial commitment 
from all Regents will strengthen the ties they have to 
the school and enable them to assist us in the 



The Campaign for 

Mount St. Mary's 


recruitment of new Regents and the solicitation of 
Campaign gifts. 

With the Trustees, the Regents have a Campaign 
goal of $5.5 million. This total will not only consist of 
gifts from Trustees and Regents, but will also represent 
their outreach into the community. We are very happy 
with the progress of the first year of the "public" phase 
of our fundraising, but clearly have some distance to 
cover before Dec. 31, 1999. The Campaign leadership 
and I hope you will help us in this fine work.

The groundbreaking ceremony was Oct. 3 and the building 
is slated to be in use by the 1997-98 academic year.

Financial Aid Resources $9,500,000 

The small, liberal arts college has historically 
been an ideal setting for an excellent 
education. There is a genuine sense of community 
on our campuses and in our classrooms, where the 
student-faculty ratio is 14 to 1. But many students 
who would benefit from attending Mount St. 
Mary's do not come, fearing that they will be 
overburdened by debt when they graduate. 

Loans and opportunity awards open the door to 
deserving students who are eager for the chance to 
attend The Mount. The prestigious President's and 
Future Teacher scholarships also bring an 
outstanding group of students to MSMC. 

To continue to attract the most promising and 
talented students, we must provide greater 
institutional support for financial aid — especially 
now, when federal and state grants have been 
dramatically reduced. 

historical ambience of the campus would be changed. The 
facilities will now be placed on both sides of Chester Place 
closer to the center of campus 

The Library, which will also house the Center for 
Cultural Fluency, will be on the east side of Chester Place 
between the Religious Studies Building and the Doheny 
Mansion. The Learning Resource Center and Academic 
Building will be on the west side of the street between 
buildings 1 and 7, The latter two 
buildings will house the tutoring 
center, counseling center, a 
computer room and meeting 
space, as well as labs, classrooms 
and offices for occupational 
therapy, associate degree in 
nursing and physical therapy, 
and the bookstore. 

The complex will be joined 
visually by an arcade across 
Chester Place. The changes did 
not increase the project cost 
and will maintain green space 
for College and civic events 
between the complex and the 
Doheny Mansion. 

The complex is named for Sister Magdalen Coughlin, 
CSJ, the president of Mount St. Mary's College from 1976 
to 1989, and chancellor from 1989 until her death in 1994. 
She had a profound commitment to American higher 
education by recognizing that educational instititutions 
must have a vital presence among the disadvantaged youth 
Her vision guided the development of a multicultural 
college that strives to meet the needs of the ever-changing 
Southern California population. She helped MSMC gain 
recognition as one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges.

School, then earned his bachelor of science degree in 
business at Santa Clara University in 1937. In 1940 he 
married Idell Forrest, and the couple raised a daughter, Toni 
Bannan Gross, a 1967 MSMC nursing graduate, and a son, 
C. Forrest Bannan, who attended Santa Clara University and 
Santa Clara Law School. 

In 1938 Bannan entered the accounting department of 
Pacific Gear and Tool Works, a family engineering/ 
manufacturing firm developed by his father, which 
produced precision products for use in a variety of 
industries. Later the company merged and eventually 
became Western Gear Corporation. When the almost-a- 
century-old business was sold in 1982, there were 
approximately 3,000 employees, and plants in five states in 
the United States, and in Belgium, Ireland and Germany. 
During his career, Bannan held several positions in the firm 
and retired as vice chairman. He was the first president of 
Pacific Western Foundation organized by Western Gear to 
oversee all the charitable functions of the corporation. 

The single largest individual donor to the College, he 
served as a member of the MSMC Board of Trustees from 

1982 to 1993 and is currently a Trustee Emeriti. He has 
been a member of the College's Regents Council since 
1977, was the founding chair of the College's investment 
committee and is a lifetime member of the Mount Associates, 
as is his daughter Toni and her husband, Steven Gross. 

"I met Sister Magdalen Coughlin in the early '70s, and we 
had a long conversation about her vision of the College," 
says Bannan. "She became a very dear friend and I always 
enjoyed working with her." 

The longtime Downey resident was the first West Coast 
president of Junior Achievement and responsible for its 
expansion in Southern California. He has consistently 
supported the Little Sisters of the Poor in San Pedro, has 
served as a board member of the regents at Santa Clara 
University,- the Los Angeles Council of Boys Scouts of 
America,- Paulist Productions, St. Vincent de Paul Society,- 
and the president's councils of Loyola Marymount 
University in Los Angeles and St. Thomas Aquinas College 
in Santa Paula. He holds honors as a Knight of Malta and a 
Knight of St. Gregory. In 1993 he was honored by Cardinal 
Roger M. Mahony at the Cardinal's annual award and 
recognition dinner. 


Charles Bannan 

"Charles Bannan is a sweet, gentle, quiet human being 
who is truly dedicated to education," says Sister Kathleen 
Kelly, vice president for the Doheny Campus. "He believes 
in the mission of the College and has been a very active 
trustee who is not afraid to take risks. His financial planning 
has helped to direct and educate us, and his guidance is very 
much appreciated." 

In 1984 when Our Lady of Mercy Chapel was built on 
the Doheny Campus, Bannan donated the altar and an 
entire window wall in memory of both his and his wife's

parents. In gratitude for his kindness, the College created a 
contemplative garden area in front of the chapel and named 
it "Bannan Court." A few years later, when the Bannans 
celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, the liturgy was 
held in the chapel. 

"Whether he is attending our College fundraisers or 
Mount Associate events, donating to our scholarship or 
building funds, offering his expert advice, recruiting new 
members to the Regents Council or sending the Sisters 
avocados, Charles Bannan has been a loyal, staunch, 
wonderlul friend of Mount St. Mary's College," says Sister

A Roundabout Transformation: 

he Circle Gets a New Look 


FTER SERVING 70 YEARS as a driveway for 
horse-buggies, carriages, automobiles and trucks, the 
Chalon Circle has seen its last wheel. The area was 
enclosed in summer 1995 and transformed into a park- 
like plaza that serves as a communal area for students, 
staff and faculty. 

"Having cars parked in this area became a problem. 
There was no way to remove cars in time for last- 
minute events that were held in the Circle," says De 

The Circle today invites study, relaxation and socialization. 

The Circle at Chalon served as a circular parking lot before 

Vere Claus, supervisor of transportation at the Chalon 
Campus. The circular parking lot was also tainted with 
oil and rubber 1 stains, making clean-up for last-minute 
events overwhelming. 

Another reason for enclosing the area had to do with 
its physical appearance. "A lot of people felt that the 
Circle divided the campus," says Claus. In fact, prior to 
its transformation, the opposite ends of the campus 
were often referred to as the "north and south ends. By 
making the Circle a place to relax with benches and 
proper lighting, the campus seems to have a more 
cohesive appearance," he says. 

With its Victorian lightposts and wrought iron and 
wood benches, chosen to match the campus' Spanish 
Gothic architecture, the Circle has become the defining 
central point of the Chalon Campus. What used to be a 
busy circular road is now a peaceful stretch of beauty 
that beckons activity and relaxation.

New Life For a Faded Beauty: 

he Renovation of Building 20 at Doheny 


OR MORE THAN 70 YEARS, even before the 
Doheny estate became Mount St. Mary's College, 
everyone called the 1902 shingle style, craftsman home 
on St. James Place the "Seaver House," or simply 
"number 20." 

Purchased by the Doheny family circa 1912, the 
house was rented to Mr. Doheny's business associate, 
the inventor of the Hydril oil drill (still in use today), 
Frank Roger Seaver and his wife, Blanche Ebert Seaver. 
The house became available for the College's use when 
Mrs. Seaver died in 1994. 

"It was just after the Northridge earthquake, and the 
entire structure needed to be strengthened and brought 
up to code and safety standards," says Sister Edward 
Mary Zerwekh, who was director of plant operations 
for the Doheny Campus. "The inside walls were either 
replaced or reinforced, the house was re-wired, a new 
heating and air-conditioning system was installed, a fire- 
escape was added, and the outside of the house was 
painted in rose-colored hues. The restoration was 
financed by the Doheny Foundation and the College's 
earthquake insurance. 

The interior boasts freshly painted white walls and 
forest green carpet for the new offices of the education 
department, and provides a temporary setting for the 
Center for Cultural Fluency, which will eventually move 
to the second floor of the soon-to-be-built Sister 
Magdalen Coughlin Learning Complex. An oak 
stairway leads upstairs where nine students and a 
residence life assistant reside in seven spacious

The Seaver House parlor and dining room were transformed 
into offices for the Education Department and Center for 

( Cultural Fluency. 

house sets a tone for the education programs and 
makes a positive impression the moment one enters," 
says Dr. Nancy Pine, director of elementary education. 
"The large rooms create a natural setting for 
collaboration, but there are also many quiet corners for 
private conferences, work and study. Being in this house 
has had a substantive impact on teaching and learning in 
the education department and it has provided the 
department with a sense of identity for students." 

Designed by Frank D. Hudson and William A. 
Munsell, who also designed the Natural History 
Museum of Los Angeles County at Exposition Park and 
the former Hall of Records Building in Downtown Los 
Angeles, the newly renovated residence radiates with 
the vitality and beauty of its earlier life.

Outstanding Alums Honored at Founders Weekend 

Founders Weekend, Oct. 4 and 5, was a time 
to reunite with old friends, expand your 
mind, enjoy entertainment and congratulate 
classmates who were honored. Mount St. Mary's 
College wishes to thank 1996 Outstanding 
Alumnae Victoria Chaney, Thelma Buchholdt 

and Jane Johnson for the time, energy, spirit and 
love they have given to their alma mater, their 
professions and their communities. The following 
tributes to each honoree by their peers will give 
you a good idea of why these three women are 
worthy of this honor. 

Outstanding alumna for professional achievement 
Victoria Chaney '67 

Superior Court Judge Victoria Chaney, class of 
1967, has a poster on the wall of her chambers 
with these words in large print "Do the 
Impossible!" In smaller print around the edges you 
can find the following: Find a Needle in a Haystack! 
Turn a Sow's Ear into a Silk Purse! Pass a Camel 
Through the Eye of a Needle! Spin Straw into Gold! 
These sayings express the energy, dedication and 
determination Chaney brings to her life. 

"In May 1994, Chaney was elevated to the Los 
Angeles Superior Court by Gov. Pete Wilson." 

After graduating with a nursing degree, she found 
her greatest satisfaction in working with chronically and 
terminally ill children and their families. Her upbeat 
can-do attitude led her to Loyola Law School, to 
private practice as an attorney, to deputy city attorney 
and to trial attorney with supervisory responsibility for 
defending the City of Los Angeles and its employees in 
police, paramedic and medical malpractice cases. 

In 1985 she was named "Trial Attorney of the 
Year;" in 1990 Gov. George Deukmejian appointed 
her a municipal court judge for the L.A. Judicial 
District; and in 1993 she was named supervising judge 
at the Metropolitan Branch. In May 1994, Chaney 
was elevated to the Los Angeles Superior Court by 
Gov. Pete Wilson. She continues in this position 
hearing criminal cases. 

How did she move from being a Mount graduate to 
a Superior Court judge? She credits much of her success 
to the nurturing and encouragement she received as a 
Mount student. She believes the Mount provided a 
safe but stimulating environment during the turbulent 
'60s and gave her a well-rounded education while 
allowing her to mature at her own rate. She feels that 

the smaller world of the Mount showed her the 
importance of a sense of community, a feeling of 
belonging. It helped her learn to trust in her ability to 
meet the challenges of her life with courage and 

Victoria Chaney '67 

She became a pioneer for women as she repeatedly 
demonstrated her ability to take her place in higher 
and higher positions of responsibility. She believes her 
experiences at the Mount helped her gain insight and 
sensitivity in working with people from many 
different backgrounds. She learned the need to respect 
the individuality of others while still helping them in 
her professional roles as nurse, attorney and judge. 
From the many Sisters and professors who became her 
role models, she learned the importance of patience 
and the necessity of humility in dealing with others. 
It is now her turn to be an inspiring role model to 
the students and graduates of the Mount. "Do the

Outstanding alumna award for service to the college 
Jane Luecke Johnson '64 

Jane Luecke Johnson has a gentle and powerful 
way of earing and connecting and it makes a lot 
of sense to me, her friend of 36 years, that she 
should be the recipient of the Outstanding Alumna 
Award for Service to Mount St. Mary's College. 

Remembering Jane, my first thought of her during 
our first years together at Mount St. Mary's is of her 
sense of personal style. From the perfection of her 
starched Peter Pan collar to her voice — low and 
generous and amused, like an intelligent song — Jane 
was the first friend I ever knew to wear driving gloves 
in the cool California mornings and she wrote fine 
poetry. She seemed the ultimate in sophistication. 
Both Jane and I taught several years for the Los 
Angeles city schools (including specializing in the 
teaching of gifted children); she often shared her 
masterful teaching materials with me without making 
a show of it. Our career paths divided when we both 
left the field — Jane received her law degree in 1980. 

Jane is active in the Los Angeles Bar Association 
and has served as chair of the Litigation Section. Her 
other legal activities include serving as Judge Pro Tern 
in the municipal and small claims courts and as a 
settlement officer and mediator for the Los Angeles 
Superior Court. She practices law with the firm of 
Johnson & Johnson Professional Law Corporation. 

"She was recently appointed as the first alumna 
representative on the MSMC Board of Trustees. " 

It's no surprise that she maintained a vital connection 
with the Mount. She has been a member of the 
College Trustees' Committee on Student Life since 
1987. In addition, she served as Alumnae Fund Drive 
director and president of the Alumnae Association. 
She is currently a member of the Advisory Committee 
for Planned Giving as well as the Committee of 
Attorneys for Planned Giving. She was recently 
appointed as the first alumna representative on the 
MSMC Board of Trustees. 

Jane Luecke Johnson '64 

The psychologist Jean Baker Miller writes about 
personal power as the ability to develop one's 
abilities in the context of self support and the support 
of others. In other words, she's looking at power in an 
untraditional way. This is not the kind of power 
associated with controlling or dominating others. Jane 
Johnson has always been a highly effective person in a 
multitude of roles. In this way she has a handle on the 
traditional, still male-dominated bases of power. What 
I pay highest homage to, however, is the elegance in 
her power to care and to connect with me, as well as 
to her husband, Hugh, her daughter and son, Hillary 
and Eric, and the community at large. You've been a 
model, dear Jane.

Outstanding alumna award for community service 
Thelma Garcia Buchholdt '56 

Thelma Garcia Buchholdt is the embodiment of 
the phrase "think globally, act locally." Since 
graduating from Mount St. Mary's in 1956 
with a zoology degree, she has served in the Alaska 
state legislature, spoken at a United Nations 
conference in Kenya and founded the Asian Alaskan 
Cultural Center, among many other achievements. Her 
work has had a dramatic impact on women and 
minorities and it is because of this that she is the 
recipient of the Outstanding Alumna Award for 
Community Service at MSMC. 

A native of Claveria, Cagayan, the Philippines, 
Thelma was among the early vanguard of post-World 
War II students from Asia to attend college in 
California. After she earned her bachelor's degree 
from MSMC, she moved to Alaska in 1965 with her 
husband, Jon, and there they raised their children 
Titania, Christopher, Hans and Dylan. 

Thelma became active as a community organizer 
and volunteer, which led her to local and statewide 
political action. She served four terms in the Alaska 
State House, representing her Anchorage District from 
1974 to 1982. She became known as a champion of 
the causes of women and minorities. She also 
sponsored projects concerned with education, 
economic development, natural resources and human 

When Gov. Tony Knowles named her director of 
the state Office of Equal Employment Opportunity in 
August 1995, he cited her decades-long tireless work 
on behalf of diverse groups and people in Alaska. In 

this position, she 
ensures that the 
state's executive 
branch, more than 
14,000 employees, 
complies with state 
and federal equal 
opportunity laws. 

She was 
recognized for her 
work on behalf of 
women and invited 

Thelma Garcia Buchholdt '56 

to speak at Forum '85, the United Nations Decade for 
Women Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. 

Thelma was the first native of the Philippines 
elected to serve in a state legislature on the mainland 
and the first Filipina elected to a state legislature in 
the U.S. As the founder and president of the Asian 
Alaskan Cultural Center, and a trustee of the Filipino 
American National Historical Society, she has 
contributed to the self-empowerment of forgotten 
communities of Filipino Americans and to national 
awareness of the contributions of Filipino Americans 
to American society. Currently, she is completing 
research on the Filipino history in Alaska from 1788 
to 1958. 

"Gov. Tony Knowles . . . cited her decades-long 
tireless work on behalf of diverse groups 

In addition to her wide range of accomplishments, 
Thelma has been co-owner of a consulting business 
in Alaska which specializes in communication, 
community organization and budget planning, and 
has led her to travel to many world areas. To expand 
her knowledge base, she earned a law degree from the 
District of Columbia School of Law in 1991 and as an 
attorney she has represented clients on a pro bono 
basis assigned to her by the Alaska Bar Association 
and the Alaska Legal Services Corporation. She 
continues to serve as a resource person on advisory 
committees which benefit a wide range of concerns 
including children's programs, the cultural resources 
of Alaska, and local and statewide political 
organization activities. 

Thelma recalls the words of an outdoor play 
performed in front of Mary Chapel which have 
inspired her throughout life to do her best: "Play your 
part well, God sees all." The many honors she has 
received give recognition to the embodiment of these 
ideals notably in community network building, 
leadership and dedicated service.

Mount Associates: An Arena of Growth for New Alumnae 

While in college, 
students are in a 
continual state of 
intellectual and social 
growth as they 
experience people and 
ideas that differ from 
the familiar. However, 
new graduates are 
faced with the 
challenge of career and 
J personal advancement, 
without always knowing how to accomplish them. The 
Mount Associates provide an excellent arena of growth 
for young alumnae through the social events offered 
throughout the year. 

Mount Associates receptions and dinners allow alums to 
interact with some of the most interesting people in the 
Los Angeles area. Associates and their guests are of 
diverse backgrounds and the new graduate member may 
find herself talking with the head of her own law firm, a 
corporate vice president, the chair of an academic nursing 
department, or even a retired astronaut. People love to 
share their experiences and ideas, and Mount Associates 
are no exception. 

Membership in the Mount Associates also provides the 
opportunity (and the motivation) to experience the rich 
culture of Los Angeles. Associates are often among the 
first to tour a new museum, taste the cuisine of a 
celebrated local chef, and enjoy Da Camera Society 
concerts in historic sites. 

Mount Associates also gives alums the opportunity to 
give something back. Their donations provide Mount St. 
Mary's College with unrestricted funds that support such 
areas as student financial aid, academic programs, and 
operational budget relief. So, while enjoying all that being 
a Mount Associate has to offer, members are supporting 
women's education. 

In order to make membership more financially 
accessible to new alumnae, there is a graduated minimum 
donation, $300 annually for alumnae through age 29, 
$600 annually for ages 30 to 34, and $1,200 annually for 
those 35 years and older. 

For those who would like a closer look at the Associates 
before joining, the fall event will take place Nov. 17 at the 
new Museum of Television and Radio. Call Theresa Davis, 
director of Annual Giving at (310) 471-9807 for more 
information about the event or the Associates.

Generations of Quiet Philanthropy 

Although colleges usually receive their greatest support 
from their alumni, there are always exceptions. For 
Mount St. Mary' s College, Joan Palevsky is one of these 
exceptions because, while not an alumna, she is a charter 
member of the Heritage Society. 

The Society, founded in 1992, honors and thanks people 
who remember MSMC in their wills, trusts, annuities, 
insurance policies, retirement funds, private foundations, 
or through an endowed scholarship fund. 

Why does a non-alum care so deeply about the Mount? 

"My deep commitment to MSMC — and to higher 
education in general — is based on the fine educational 
programs the College offers to students. Although I am not 
an alumna, I admire very much what is going on there." 

Palevsky's motivation for philanthropy began very early. 
Her mother "always gave a little to certain causes, 
including the support of a child in India," which Palevsky 
continued after her mother's death. 

Having earned a B.A. in romance languages at U.C.L.A. 
and an M.A. in French at the University of Wisconsin, she 

taught literature for many years at U.C.L.A. In 1988 she 
was chosen U.C.L.A.'s Alumnus of the Year for "quietly 
helping to put education first," according to the UCLA 

She often gives support and contributions anonymously. 
"Mainly I've wanted to honor other people whom I 
thought ought to be honored," she says. She has been 
particularly generous in providing funds for scholarships, 
faculty endowed chairs, and various types of assistance for 

Beginning in the late '70s Palevsky became acquainted 
with Mount St. Mary's College and has been very close 
ever since. She was particularly fond of Sister Magdalen 
Coughlin and at Sister's death she wrote, "She was 
unforgettable, so good and so lovable. It was a comfort to 
know she existed." 

Through the years Palevsky's support of MSMC has 
included generous contributions for the President's 
Endowed Scholarship Fund (which will be further 
enhanced through a bequest in her will), Yates House — a 
faculty residence named in honor of her mother, the Da 
Camera Society, and various educational programs. 

Her dedication to the Mount just proves that it doesn't 
take a degree to instill devotion to an institution, it merely 
takes a distinctive mission that others embrace. Palevsky's 
contributions will be appreciated for decades to come by 
hundreds of students who share her vision.

MSMC Rated One Of The Best In The West 

Only two years ago the Carnegie 
Commission moved Mount St. Mary's 
from the category of regional liberal 
arts college to that of regional 
university and already the College has 
proven its ability to fare well among its 
fellow big leaguers. The Mount was 
rated one of the top regional 
universities in the West in U.S. News & 
World Report's 10th annual "America's 
Best Colleges" issue published Sept. 16, 
and one of the best college values in the 
Sept. 23 U.S. News issue. 

Mount St. Mary's was rated twelfth 
among the best regional universities in 

the West. To arrive at the 1996-97 
rankings, U.S. News & World Report 
evaluated about 500 universities in this 
category. The rating is based on an 
analysis of several criteria, including the 
excellence of academic programs and 
faculty, admission standards, retention 
rate and alumni giving. 

Mount St. Mary's also rated eighth 
among national universities in the West 
in the U.S. News best values — discount 
prices category. This category is 
determined by taking the average 
college costs per student and subtracting 
the average financial aid award.

Expecting the Best From An 
Ad Campaign 

1 he ad at left is one of several print 
and broadcast advertisements 
designed by the Ad Council for the 
Women's College Coalition, an 
organization of 68 women's colleges 
nationwide. The print ads and 
commercials have been published in 
national magazines/ newspapers and 
have aired on television stations since 
November 1995. 

The intent of the 15-year campaign 
is to encourage parents and teachers 
of young girls to create an 
environment that promotes 
achievement by young girls so that 
they can acquire the skills and 
competencies necessary to succeed in 
today's world. Parents and teachers 
who call (800) WCC-4-GIRLS receive 
brochures and booklets to help them 
support girls in this way. Girls need 
to understand that their school life, 
career choices and achievements need 
have no limitations based on gender. 

Mount St. Mary's College is listed 
as an educational resource in the 
campaign materials and has received 
several calls from parents seeking 
additional information. 

If you would like to receive the 
campaign materials as well as a free 
book, "Women's Colleges: The Inside 
Guide to More Than 75 of These 
Popular Schools — Proven Training 
Grounds for Successful Women 
Leaders," call Jill Perry, public 
relations director, (310) 471-9537.

A Sign Above The Rest 

Construction at Carondelet Center led to installation of this traffic sign on the road to the Chalon Campus. The sign 
had been up less than week when it got its 1 5 minutes of fame — photographs of it were printed in the "Only in 
LA." column of the Los Angeles Times and broadcast on KABC Channel 7 News.
